Welcome to the web site of Bedworth Folk Club.
General Information
The Club, which has run almost continuously since 1972, meets every 2nd wednesday of the month (8pm start) in the Smercote Lounge at The Newdigate Club in Smorrall Lane, Bedworth (CV12 0JP), and also holds a second night most months on the 4th wednesday, except June - August (also 8pm start) at Bedworth Rugby Club. The club is quite unique in that there is no admission charge despite the fact that there are top rate guests at almost every meeting (we just pass the jug around so you can give as much or as little as you wish a minimum of the price of a pint (around about £3 - £5) is suggested – our aim is always for everyone, guests, audience and floor singers alike to have a really good time.Floor singers are always welcome but we get very busy so we recommend a call or email to reserve a spot, on the night it is very much first come first served – if there is space available.

Sally Ironmonger & Brian Carter

About me - I am a singer-songwriter based in Medway, writing and performing with Brian Carter, my husband, guitarist, and musical director. Our aim is to entertain, with songs that make you laugh, or cry, or just think and make a connection with listeners and audiences. We tend to get categorised as folk musicians I guess because what we do tends to be stripped down, unplugged, story based. Let's not get into a debate about what folk music is, suffice to say that what we do is contemporary, with a nod to traditional themes. Brian has worked as a professional and semi-professional musician all of his adult life. Over the years he has developed a style which fuses jazz, folk & latin to produce a unique mix of melody and bass rhythms. I only really found my wings since we met in the 1990s although I always loved to sing, and strummed guitar to accompany myself, it was Brian who promised to put my name up in chalk. Over the years we have written commissions for BBC documentaries and Broadstairs Folk Week, we ran the First Friday Folk club at the Tom Thumb Theatre, Margate, and have been supporting artists for Barbara Dickson, Jacqui McShee, Chris Wood & Jez Lowe.
